When it's blatantly obvious that Walmart targets these kinds of people for employment, then yes it is the employer.
You only need to look at Walmart's long detailed list of labor suites, employee discrimination suites, allegations of poor working conditions, predatory pricing, low health care employee coverage, union opposition, etc.
Painting Walmart a victim of their employee's welfare issues doesn't make any sense at all. We're not talking about the other employers because they don't treat their employees this badly. That's why the studies show Walmart costing the general public so much more than those other stores.
